Wills and Probate Lawyer
The KennonLegal Ltd. LLP, law firm has been providing seasoned legal advice and representation to clients in the preparation of legal wills and handling of probate matters for over two decades.
Wills and powers of attorney
A simple legal will can help your family know your wishes and avoid potential contests and disputes. Powers of attorney can enable you to choose the person who will manage your assets and financial affairs in the case of mental incompetency or disability during your lifetime. For persons facing medical uncertainties, the use of health care directives, guardianship planning, living wills, and medical powers of attorney may ensure that you receive the appropriate medical treatment and management of your finances according to your specific directions should you become incapacitated.
As life circumstances change, our asset protection lawyers recommend that all clients review their personal wills, their medical care directives, heirships, guardianships, and other documents. For advice and guidance in preparing a last will and testament, contact the Georgetown wills and probate lawyers at KennonLegal Ltd. LLP.
Probate and Estate Administration
Our probate law firm provides guidance to administrators and executors during either probate or estate administration. The administration may include the probating of a will, heirship proceedings, or muniment of title. The purpose of probate is to accurately and legally distribute a person’s property pursuant to his wishes as outlined in a valid will or as required by statute if there is no valid will. Another purpose of a probate administration is to make sure that clear title to property is transferred to the beneficiary under a will or other court ordered administration of an estate.
The probate process can be complicated due to contests from potential beneficiaries and other interest holders. We help from start to finish in any estate or probate administration, from locating all the decedent’s property, to paying creditors, taxes, and other outstanding debts, to settling disputes and preparing the necessary documents to finally distribute the property to beneficiaries and other heirs.
